Janine Antoni opens Within, a solo exhibition of new work, including a collaboration with Stephen Petronio, at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh, guest-curated by Margery King. In her ardent takeover of the entire space, trees are severed, the building is pierced, rooms are crowned, honey soothes and flesh and bones merge into unexpected meetings. For over two decades, Janine Antoni’s work has been an accumulation of traces left behind by her unusual processes. These unorthodox methods allow her to emphasize the meaning inherent in making. Antoni’s sculpture calls upon the viewer to use their physicality to pose the question, “what does it mean to have a body?” All the while, she frames this question from the perspective of a woman.
